Cat behaviorists will tell you that under-active cats are not just fat, but bored too. When cats are left alone, in the house all day, their instincts to hunt, explore, play or socialize are rarely engaged. SmartCat’s newest invention, the “Peek a Prize” Toy Box was created with that premise in mind. It appeals to a cat’s instinctual behavior and natural curiosity. Since cats are natural predators, they love to hunt. The sturdy wood-constructed box allows cats to “capture” their toys by fishing them out of strategically placed access holes. Rotate the toys in the box so they are always digging for something different, and for extra fun, put a few food treats inside! ($29.99. For this and other fun items, go to www.esmartcat.com
